A crowd of around 50,000 is expected at Wembley tomorrow ...
Sept 1, R1: Scunthorpe (a) W 2-1
Lewin Nyatanga and Marley Watkins seal a comfortable victory at Glanford Park, Charlie Goode only scoring the Iron’s consolation in stoppage time.
Oct 13, R2: Bradford City (a) W 2-1
Postponed the previous week following a deluge ahead of kick-off that left Valley Parade unplayable, the Reds triumphed at Valley Parade thanks to strikes from Watkins and Alfie Mawson. Billy Knott had earlier given the Bantams a first-half lead.
Nov 11, R3: York City (H) W 2-1
Just four days after being humbled in the FA Cup by non-League Altrincham, Lee Johnson’s men gained a welcome respite thanks to a late winner from Adam Hammill on his return to the club. York, under new manager Jackie McNamara, had taken a shock lead through Michael Coulson and were not pegged back until the 67th minute by Ben Pearson.
Dec 5, NSF: Wigan Athletic (a) D 2-2 (won 4-2 on pens)
Ivan Toney and Hammill twice put the Yorkshire side ahead only to be pegged back by the Latics. Craig Davies and David Perkins miss for the hosts in the shoot-out, meaning that when Mawson converted the Reds’ fourth spot-kick, the visitors were through to the regional final.
Jan 9, NF1: Fleetwood (H) D 1-1
Ashley Fletcher marked his debut on loan with a second-half equaliser in the first leg at Oakwell. Adam Davies had been unfortunate to put the Lancashire side ahead with an own goal just after the hour mark.
Feb 4; NF2: Fleetwood (a) D 1-1 (Won 4-2 on pens)
Davies is the hero for Barnsley with two saves in a shoot-out that is eventually won by Hammill’s effort from 12 yards crashing in off the underside of the bar. Earlier, Conor Hourihane had put the Reds ahead only for Ashley Hunter to equalise with nine minutes remaining. Lee Johnson quits as head coach the following morning to take charge of Bristol City.
Sept 1, R1: Bye
